Non-surgical tummy tuck

I think you are not alone in wanting a "non-surgical tummy tuck."  This sounds like one of those things that is too good to be true and, unfortunately, is just that.  Treatment of the abdomen has a graduated series of options.
The easiest to tolerate and least invasive is CoolSculpting and similar technology. This works with minimal downtime and less cost but does not provide dramatic results, just improvement.  The next step up is liposuction. Like Coolsculpting, in the right patient, liposuction can provide ideal results. The incisions are small and recovery is in between CoolSculpting and a Tummy Tuck. A surgical tummy tuck is the most invasive option but has the power to provide really dramatic results by removing skin, improving shape, tightening the muscles to get rid of a bulge and is almost always coupled with a little liposuction around the hips to improve the results.
The downtime and cost are more but the results can be incredible.
Best,

can be done through technologies such as 'Cool Sculpting'.  But buyer beware... it often takes several sessions (and you are billed for each session) and when it does, it exceeds the costs of liposuction or tummy tucks.  If you have loose skin that hangs, you are wasting your time with 'non-surgical' techniques.  But if someone says they can do it for you, get it in writing and with guarantee to protect yourself.

Thank you for the question.


To best help you, a physical examination or picture evaluation is required in order to determine which procedures and techniques would be best for your case. How ever there's no non- surgical tummy tuck, this is just marketing strategies that some PS"s use to get patients in their practices.

There are no realistic comparable alternatives to a tummy tuck and there are no "non-surgical tummy tucks." Patients with minimal laxity of skin may, however, get a mild benefit from skin tightening procedures like Exilis, a radiofrequency technology that is non-invasive. It may require more than 1 treatment session and you need to be very realistic about your expectations. Non-invasive treatments will not tighten significant laxity, remove stretch marks, or repair separated abdominal wall muscular that can result from pregnancy.

Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure would not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

There is nothing nonsurgical that can achieve a tummy tuck result.  A standard tummy tuck would remove loose skin, tighten the muscles, and remove the stretchmarks below the navel.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of tummy tucks and body contouring procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a nonsurgical tummy tuck.  Sounds like a procedure designed to take weight out of your wallet and not off of your abdomen.  See a board certified plastic surgeon to get a consultation to really see what your options are.  Good luck, Dr. Schuster in Boca Raton.

Not sure what a non surgical TT is but if it involves skin tightening it will never give you the results of a full TT so don't waste your money unless you know the limitations of this procedure

Non surgical treatments are of limited benefit, these may include cool sculpt or similar for fat reduction,   thermal or similar for skin tightening. They are all expensive and of limited benefit.

Please make sure you understand the limitations of these treatments.

There really is no such thing as a non-surgical tummy tuck. A tummy tuck involves tightening of the abdominal muscles and removal of excess skin from the abdomen. There is no way to accomplish this without a surgical procedure.

There is no non surgical tummy tuck.  You could wear a waist binder to give the illusion of a tummy tuck.  Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) for an exam, and to discuss the options that are available to you.
